Google Docs

I've been trying to get my district's IT department to allow access to Google Docs. To bring some data to them I would like to get replies from teachers/administrators that have access to use Google Docs in your classrooms. I have afeeling I work in one of the only districts to block the Google Docs website. I'm not asking if you usethe website in your classrooms. I'm just asking if you have access tothe site. Please respond to this discussion if you do or do not haveaccess to Google Docs.See More
